Patchwork Notebook Covers


Been having a go at covering note books.  Had some left over fabric from the patchwork baby quilt.  It was fun to do.

Played with my new Singer Embroidery foot on the Featherweight trying to learn free motion quilting.  The small notebook is a Liberty print with the flowers picked out with orange thread, its not perfect by a long way but as I quilted with the machine, the easier it became.  I found that if I turned the fabric too quickly, it skipped stitches so steady away was the way to go making sure that the stitches had caught before setting off.  It finished off with some vintage bias binding which was a perfect match.
